The latest issue of the US magazine Entertainment Weekly, out Friday, has a very special Peter Capaldi cover and feature inside. Check out the deets below and click on the image included for a bigger version.
Does this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly
defy the laws
of physics by being bigger on the inside than it would appear from
looking at its exterior? Fans of the British science fiction show Doctor Who
may well think so. For this week’s cover story, senior writer Clark
Collis travels to the UK to meet with Peter Capaldi, the new star of the
now 51-year-old time travel saga, and to find out what fans can expect
from the forthcoming season of Doctor Who
, which premieres on Aug 23.
“He’s more alien than we’ve seen him for a
says the actor, speaking about his version of the eccentric Time
“He is less patient with the foibles of human beings.”
Thankfully, the whole Who team were patient with EW‘s
probing about the new, hush-hush season. In addition to Capaldi, Collis
also spoke with the actor’s costar Jenna Coleman and showrunner Steven
Moffat who tackled such burning as questions as “Will Capaldi’s previous
appearances in the Who universe be referenced this season?”
and “What will happen in the two-part finale?” Collis even got to drive
the Doctor’s bigger-on-the-inside time- and space-ship the TARDIS and did
so without busting anything which, according to production designer
Michael Pickwoad, makes him a more careful temporal navigator than
previous Who star Matt Smith (“He was very good at breaking
things”). We also persuade Capaldi to talk about the old monsters he’d
like his Doctor to face and offer a sartorial breakdown of the Time
Lord’s many looks through the show’s half-century history. Never seen Doctor Who (and feel a bid daunted by that history)? Then feel free to peruse our guide to how you can get into Who.
